Several organizations in the USA have come up in the fight for civil and human rights across the country. The groups advocate for these rights especially for immigrants and groups that face discrimination and that are vulnerable in the society.
These groups have gone over and above to curb the social injustices and the oppression of immigrants, women and children and even people with the different orientation. The organizations are working around the clock to ensure these people receive equal treatment from the government and local citizens at large.
Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund
The Larkin and lacey Frontera Fund has been on the forefront of advocating for human and civil rights in the country. The group is mainly focused in Arizona and Mexico but also has contributed significantly to other groups advocating for civil and human rights across the country.
The Larking and Lacey Frontera Fund has continued to expand its support around the globe in the last few years.
Jim Larkin and Michel Lacey formed the organization after they were illegally arrested and consequently imprisoned for exposing the Grand Jury that targeted all editors and reporters who were writing on the Arpaio issue.
However, they were an appeal from the two journalists that led to them winning the case and it was settled by a compensation amount of $3.75 million. It was the compensation that Jim and Mike started the Larking and Lacey Frontera Fund organization. The organization has extended its support to many different groups in favor of the same agenda across the globe.
Other organizations that are in the fight for Human, civil and Migrants Rights include:
The coalition for humane immigrant rights (CHIRLA)
The group mainly operates from California. It focuses on the rights of freedom of movement of all the immigrants. Their main aim is to create a society that is a free avenue for both social and democratic expression. They are also aiming for a society where all immigrants are treated as equal members of the organization.
ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project
This group is mainly concern with litigation programs that protect the civil rights. The group has pushed for the implementation of the constitution to help in the realization of equal human rights.
This group ensures that the immigrants get proper and fair treatment by challenging the laws that violate the civil and human rights of migrants.
These and other unmentioned groups fight tirelessly to see to it that the rights of these vulnerable groups are upheld.
